A barcode scanner is a device that “scans” black and white elements of a barcode by illuminating the code with a red light, which is then converted into matching text.
Barcode Scanners come in different sizes and presentations, and there are different options to choose from.
Choosing the Right Barcode Scanner
If you want to use this technology, please make sure the device you choose meets the following conditions:
- COM Mode: The Scanner has Serial Emulation Mode (Virtual COM Port Mode)
- USB Interface: This means that it is connected via USB to the computer.
- It can decode the barcodes format that you want to use: For example, if you want to use QR codes, the Scanner must be able to decode 2D barcodes.
- Mobile Screen Reading: If you want your members to use a barcode from the screen of their phones, you must use a reader that has this feature.
